Resolution 2014

It’s 2014. How are your New Year’s resolutions going?

I find when I make resolutions about stopping this or doing more of that, I’m either succeeding or failing with every decision and I’m constantly judging myself. That feels like a messed up way to begin the year.

This year I chose a new style. I’m applying the formula: To transform anxiety into joy, convert “I have to” into “I get to.” Instead of making demand- resolutions, I’m making resolutions of opportunity.  Here’s how this works…

I’m declaring 2014 to be The Year of Inspiration & Innovation.

My resolution is to find inspiration wherever I can and be more inspiring to others. I would like to improve my effectiveness as well, so I’m going to pay more attention to others and learn from them when I can. I can’t always plan how I’ll do it, but I’ll know when it’s happening and I’ll enjoy those moments.

It’s easier to meet an intention occasionally than to stay in a box constantly. I have goals too and I’m working on them. But that’s different. Goals are not resolutions.

When I make resolutions about aspiring to potential, it’s great when I do it and every little bit counts. It’s a more positive approach and that’s how I prefer to start my year!

It’s never too late to resolve a Happy New Year!
